We picked this beautiful Table / Lamp up at an estate sale on the World Famous "Hill" in South St. Louis a few years ago. I almost didn't buy it.
It was marked at $75 and I didn't think too much of it at the time as it was
covered in Decades of cigarette smoke and dust. The Girlfriend asked as we
were leaving if I had seen it and I said I had but that $75 was too much for
it. She mentioned that I could put a bid in the "Bid Box" and maybe they'd
call. I thought, yeah...hmmm, maybe I will.
So I went back in to put a bid in and they asked what I was going to bid. I told
them that I'd give them $35 for it and they said "Sold!". So home it went with
us! After cleaning it up a little I realized how great it looked. Yeah, there's
a little cigarette burn on the table but it kinda adds to the character! Plus, I
can just cover it with a clock or something. I've thought about selling it a
couple of times but the Girlfriend just ain't going for it.
